A free, daily newsletter for parents and guardians at home with children, helping to enrich learning with real-life knowledge and skills.

We originally launched this newsletter because of the many parents and guardians who contacted us for help during the closure of schools in March 2020.

Today it has evolved into a weekly letter sent out each Friday morning term. In it we aim to give you a brief guide to two of the most stimulating debates from the week’s news, with a summary of the different sides that people are taking and some guides to further reading.

We select links to the best of the highest quality journalism available in the world so that, if you’re interested in current affairs, you will always have something to enrich your day.

And we scour thousands of resources for one activity per week that we can unreservedly recommend both for primary and secondary age children. We look for ways to supplement the curriculum in ways that children between the ages of six and 19 will thoroughly enjoy.

Our purpose has always been to set young people on the path to exploring the real world and thinking for themselves, making their own connections between the academic syllabus and the thrilling and challenging arena that awaits them beyond school.
